What is an Emmp?

What is an Emmp?

Environmental Mitigation and Monitoring Plans (EMMPs) are required for USAID-funded projects when the 22 CFR 216 documentation governing the project (e.g., the Initial Environmental Examination (IEE)) imposes mitigation measures on at least one project or activity.

What is Emmp Singapore?

Environmental Monitoring and Management Programme (EMMP)

What is mitigation and monitoring?

The purpose of a mitigation reporting or monitoring program (MRMP) is to discuss feasible measures to avoid or substantially reduce the significant environmental impacts from a project identified in the EIR or ND.

What is impact mitigation monitoring?

An impact mitigation plan describes the mitigation, monitoring and auditing management required to ensure proper implementation of agreed mitigation measures and verification of predicted environmental impacts (Brew and Lee, 1996).

How is environmental impact assessment done?

The EIA Process Screening: The project plan is screened for scale of investment, location and type of development and if the project needs statutory clearance. Scoping: The project’s potential impacts, zone of impacts, mitigation possibilities and need for monitoring.

How do you create an environmental impact assessment?

EIA: 7 Steps

  1. Scoping. Establish the boundaries of the EIA, set the basis of the analyses that will be conducted at each stage, describe the project alternatives and consult the affected public.
  2. Impact Assessment & Mitigation.
  3. Impact Management.
  4. The EIA Report.
  5. Review & Licensing.
  6. Monitoring.

What are the examples of mitigation measures?

Other examples of mitigation measures include:

  • Hazard mapping.
  • Adoption and enforcement of land use and zoning practices.
  • Implementing and enforcing building codes.
  • Flood plain mapping.
  • Reinforced tornado safe rooms.
  • Burying of electrical cables to prevent ice build-up.
  • Raising of homes in flood-prone areas.

What are the basic components of an environmental impact statement?

An EIS outlines the status of the environment in the affected area, provides a baseline for understanding the potential consequences of the proposed project, identifies positive and negative effects for the environment, and offers alternative actions, including inaction, in relation to the proposed project.

What is an emmp and when is it required?

EMMPs are required for almost all USAID-funded activities with a governing Initial Environmental Examination (IEE) or Environmental Assessment (EA) requiring mitigation of environmental or social risks. The EMMP is the basis for systematic implementation and monitoring of these requirements.

What is the field of monitoring in an emmp?

Field Monitoring/Issues. Field monitoring needs to be adequately addressed i.e. monitoring dates, observations, issues identified and resolution. This field is primarily for documentation during implementation. Generally, EMMPs are developed by the IP (and updated at least annually) in conjunction with the Annual Work Plan.

What is the most effective emmp approach?

Developed by us, it’s regarded as the most effective EMMP approach for control and mitigation of potential environmental impacts of construction in sensitive marine environments. Numerical modelling to optimise construction methods, reducing impacts and costs
